Why the Resurrection Still Matters


*This is a scheduled post. Thank you for reading.  

As Easter approaches, I have been thinking about what I should make to share with you all. A new recipe or my cake creations?  Maybe a DIY  fondant bunny to place a top of a cake?

As I was pondering about what to make, I came across the In Touch magazine that arrived in the mail and I got convicted.  It reminded me of the true meaning of Easter. I was even more convicted when I read about what Dr. Charles Stanley had said about it.

Prelude to Summer

 It has been an overwhelming month or so with so many projects to do, my blog, family responsibilities coinciding each other.  I took a break from time to time to enjoy the company of my friends and to enjoy nature.
 Lunch Date
My friend, her guest and I went out to lunch at this Asian Bistro in Chantilly.  She highly recommended this Bento box served with Miso soup, Shumai, California roll, rice and a choice of beef, chicken, shrimp, or salmon.  I chose salmon.
I was surprised how large the serving was, but I didn’t complain.  I loved what I had in my Bento box. It had all of my favorite Asian foods.

Have a Beautiful Spring!

It’s a bit late, but welcome spring!  I’m just happy that it’s officially spring. However, the weather is still a bit cold for me, especially in the morning.  I hope it’s warmer in your world and basking in the sun.  I baked this cake to welcome the season.  I made my favorite Purple Yam (Ube) and Coconut Screw pine (Buko Pandan). I love the vibrant green color from the screw pine and the purple color from the yam.  And the flavor?  Insanely delicious! ❤  The icing tasted like ice cream.  This cake surely is my best pick to celebrate spring or Easter.  


Thank you for visiting.  I appreciate it. Have a lovely spring and a peaceful Holy week!  ❤

Color Me Purple

I have been extremely busy the past few weeks that my body finally gave in with a headache and sniffles.  I wanted to stay in bed and get more sleep yesterday, but I had to rise, so I could bake my sister’s birthday cake. It was her birthday yesterday. Good thing I bought her flowers beforehand.

I could barely function in the kitchen.  I didn’t have any idea how her cake should look like.  I just worked with whatever I’ve got here at home for decorations. To my surprise, I managed to create a beautiful and delicious cake. I remember her love of nature and favorite color purple, so I cut some fresh flowers for the top of the cake and placed a pink butterfly on the edge.  I used small purple fondant flowers to decorate around the the bottom.  I also made her French macarons and placed them in a festive, birthday favor bags. I basically colored her day purple with her favorite treats. 🙂  Happy belated birthday Sister Elsa!

That is all for now.  Thank you for reading and stopping by.  Don’t forget to Follow or Subscribe to get the latest recipes and ideas.  Until next time. Have a blessed day!
